Octomore .1 editions are matured solely in ex-American whiskey casks for five years. Octomore 12.1 is the necessary control for the rest of the series, as experiments within an experiment, but the baseline should not be underestimated. Mainland grown Scottish barley is distilled in a patient and considered trickle. The stripped-back maturation profile allows a sensory conversation that highlights this barley-forward single malt's cereal-rich, malty notes. Vanilla, citrus and fudge culminate in an enigmatic challenge to receive whisky wisdom.  


NOSE It opens on zesty citrus freshness and earthy peat smoke: vanilla sponge cake and barley sugars with rich malt sweetness. Coconut and chocolate, vanilla and caramel follow and as the aromas open further, cinder toffee and layers of Peat smoke and honey come to the fore.
PALATE Peppery and sweet on the palate, with a texture of warm golden syrup. Honey and peat smoke then fired oak chips and peaty apricot jam open. Another sip brings malted barley sugars and straw, heather flower and a nutty nougat sweetness. Finally, a mineral sandy note sits on the palate and brings a dry phenolic earthy smoke and hints of orange zest and pear drops.
FINISH The finish brings salted caramel with floral and herbal notes. Honeysuckle, primrose and then gentle peat smoke, as ever, the note that drifts on the longest.
